Big improvement in light quality - love the golden overtone.
However, that nasty sinister blackness in the shadows persists.

Please post your lighting set-up and settings.

might be a dumb question but wat is a mauve color? rgb settings can help

Dwight

I can't understand how a modern (1856) color like mauve - a kind of purple - hasn't made it to your island home, blending as it does so well with the turquoise waves.

swell.
If you keep increasing the ambient power, it will become even less murky.

Try full power ambient.

THEN, make ambient 200% in the Photorendering Settings dialog.

I'm trying to show how ambinet power eliminates blackness in shadows - a sinister effect.

updated with the ambient at 200%

Dwight

So what do you think?
You see how ambient light creates ambience?
And eliminates that nasty murkiness?
But now, everything glows like circus candy.

So what you need to do is balance the ambient energy. Is the correct amount 1/2 or 3/4 the amount in the last image?

What happens if you adjust the ambient power in the 'more sun' setting? I thought I saw something about it in your book, but now can't find it again... Are they linked?

I meesed up in the book. It wasn't clear.

Normally, in the photo rendering dialog, you keep Sun at 100 and Ambient at 100.

These setting modulate the REAL sun and ambient values that are set in the Camera dialog

So when I tell a guy to go to 200, it is doubling the effect of the real Ambient setting - beyond the normal intensity range.

The supplement to my book for ArchiCAD 10 is almost ready - anyone who uses LightWorks in ArchiCAD should have the purchased the book by now. The supplement is free with book registration.

... and so when adjusting ambient light, should it be in the 'more sun' dialog?

Sorry for being a bit slow (been in london too long, the smog dulls the brain.)

Dwight

Your basic sun and ambient values are established through the Camera dialog.

In the Photorendering Dialog, those values can be multiplied to exceed 100, but why bother...

It turns out that boosting ambient by saying "150%" makes renderings less murky.
